Book update- The book is being bound today. I am pretty excited about that. There was a a minor bump in the road but the printer fixed it and I will be using them again. I will have books for the Tucson Con and then the rest come next week and then I start the task of rewarding the kickstarter groups.

Also over halfway on the next chapter. It is moving along smoothly and I am really excited about how the story is really gaining a life of it’s own if you haven’t noticed already.

Thanks again for all the support.

Keep Creating

It would be empty if you think about how our planet would be if there was limited nuclear war. try for instance any major city on the planet with an underground system of tunnels. now run it forward a few thousand years. In fact there is a ready made example in the drains under Rome that were so well made that they exist to this day. Now, I'm not suggesting that BrokenMoon is or is not our planet. Only that similar older examples exist now that are 2000 years old, and that they are just beginning to explore all of them.

If you enjoy this story, you may also enjoy the books of L. E. Modesitt, the story is different, but some of the feel is the same. At least of the people of a magic land trying to work towards remembering forgotten tales. of course this may be apparent to me because i am reading another series of tales with a similar bent by Robin Hobb

I agree with how developed the underground is. So developed that you would expect more people regularly encountered.
Although to be realistic I think it would be quite dark and scarey down there…

    the underground has basically become a giant tomb- (for now) As for the lighting- there are tons of crystals down there that generate their own lights

"You will be safe when we get there. Very safe."

Somehow…I don't like the sound of that.

    You are not alone.

    It's the "very safe" that unnerves

The undergrounds, like every page drawn is so full of detail. It amazes me how steady Travis works with such quality. Artists who publish regularly like this blow my mind. I have to admit.

I´m surprised that, with such underground conecting almost every localization of the map, there isn´t guards or walls to prevent asaults or thieves.

    there were prob guards at one time at some entrances- yet it is also like a huge termite hill that just goes on and on- you can watch everything… and after the purges not many venture to go down anymore

I love your underground environments. They do such a good job of suggesting an old, advanced civilization. When it’s not monumental stairs and statues, it’s metal pipes. Fun!

    thank you- i wanted the world underground to be just as huge as the world above ground- just a little emptier
